Both sound nice, I would ask for an IS image and an image of the stone next. Welcome to Pricescope by the way.

Welcome Miss Toy,

I prefer the second diamond, as it is advertised as a h&a, will you be able to get images for the hearts and arrows diamond please?

Everyone is so nice here. :) Been lurking for a long time, finally getting to the point where it''s time to buy.

No pictures yet, unfortunately. Is the only factor that makes #2 more attractive the hearts and arrows, or are the proportions better, as well?

The crown and pavilion angles are in a nice spot (along with everything else). And those are what drive the light performance in a diamond. So they are important.
I just don''t want to see you pay a premium for H&A (which they normally carry) without some evidence. That''s why we wondered if there were some pics.

And welcome to PS!
